I bristle a little bit knowing they went with Greg Jein's rationale for starship registries because in the end Jein basically fanboyed it. I much prefer the Franz Joseph manner of reasoning and were I to build other ships I'd customize the decals to go with that.
Agreed. Jein had FJ's numbers in hand and had no valid reason for undermining them.
The only problem with FJ's list is that he inexplicably missed the Defiant. With Karen and her group of friends helping him, I don't know how that could have happened.
